Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site. Please follow along to learn more.
It can be startling to find that you have an infestation of mice in your home. You may actually see a mouse or you may find the fecal pellets that they leave behind. No matter what your first encounter is with the little rodents, it is something that you want to take care of as soon as possible. Having a mouse problem can be extremely dangerous for you and your family. The fecal pellets of mice can actually carry Hantavirus, which can be deadly. Other than spreading disease mice can chew through cords and other materials that you just do not want chewed on. When it comes to getting rid of mice, there are a few things that you can do. This article is going to outline a few ways to help get rid of mice.
Something that is super important is that you start to clean your home extremely well. You do not want the mouse to have anything to munch on. Ensure that your cupboards are extremely clean, and that all the crumbs on the floor are vacuumed up. Even move your refrigerator and clean behind it, because you want to make your home as unappealing to the mice as possible. While it is very uncommon for a mouse to actually leave a home because of cleanliness, it may keep other mice from joining the party.
Use Traps And Poison
The use of traps and poison can be extremely effective. Most of the time it is smart to actually use traps instead of poison because with poison the mouse can scamper on off home, but dies soon afterwards. If it is not found then the mouse can start to stink up the home. However, a trap can kill a mouse instantly and can be thrown away shortly thereafter. Make sure that you are using a bait that the mouse is used to. Try to find what the mouse has been eating on lately and use it as bait. It is also best to set your traps perpendicular to the wall so the mouse absolutely has to crawl over the trap mechanism to get to the bait.
If you have set traps and used poison, but your mouse control solutions don't seem to work, it is time to call a professional. The technician that will come to your home will be able to track these little rodents down and find where they are living in your home. This is important because they will be able to strike them down where they live.
